Earlier this summer, Loren was named a Waste360 40 Under 40 award winner.
Below is an excerpt from the Waste360 interview with Loren:
What do you most like about your job and why?
I love having the flexibility and being empowered to create meaningful programs for my company and employees. The ability to understand the employee need, develop the solution and see it implemented is one of the best work experiences you can have.
What’s hardest for you in your work?
It’s hard to wait for the changes you’ve implemented to start generating the positive outcomes that were expected. During that period of uncertainty, you don’t know if you made the right decision or if you need to make adjustments to the program going forward, which makes it hard to work through.
Where did you see yourself going when you began your career?
When I started my career in public accounting, I envisioned being a partner at a large CPA [certified public accountant] firm. After two years in public accounting with BDO Seidman, I decided to explore other career options, which is when I landed in Allied’s corporate tax department. I certainly didn’t think I would be in procurement, but that is what makes this so much fun for me—seeing where your career journey might take you.
